Getting ourselves prepared for bed can be difficult some nights. Of course, when it comes to kids, it can be a real chore. So, what can help? Believe it or not, a simple bedtime story may be the perfect remedy!
Even at a young age, kids start to associate storytelling with sleep. Wikipedia states that a routine bedtime story relaxes children and the soothing voice of a storyteller helps the child fall asleep more quickly. As if those weren’t good enough reasons in and of themselves, the act itself of reading a child to sleep also creates a bond between the adult and their little listener.
So, the next time you and your child are suffering from a bit of insomnia, remember that a good bedtime story may just be the cure to both your nighttime woes!
